British Army runs on bullying

An investigation was launched after Royal Military Police officers saw the photographs online and arrested a man, but the young victim was too frightened to talk to the investigating NCO.
‘Before he started to ask me about it, I told him I knew why I was there but that there was nothing in it and I wasn’t pressing any charges.’
He said the officer did not push him on pressing charges, and the matter was left at that.
The soldier said he understood that the pressures of life as a soldier meant some form of banter was bound to happen, but said when his fiancee in Britain saw the Facebook photographs she was appalled.

UK’s bill for compulsory national service a step closer to approval

Tue Sep 10, 2013
The British parliament are set for the second round of debates on a bill that restores the Prime Minister’s version of the military service for young people, potentially changing their life plans.

If signed into law, the legislature would make it obligatory for 18-to-26-year-olds to live away from their natural home for a year and take part in one or more public services including “charitable work, social action, care for the elderly or disabled, overseas development activity, or work connected with the National Health Service, the emergency services or the Armed Forces.”

The new regulations would mean able young adults at the end of high school or college, looking toward university education or starting a new career, will be forced into public service for the national minimum wage, or, face criminal charges.

During the 2010 general election campaign, UK PM David Cameron pledged to require every 16-year-old to take part in a “non-military national service” scheme.

Cameron mentioned the scheme again in mid-August 2011 after thousands of people wrecked stores, attacked passers-by and set buildings alight in a wave of unrest in the capital London and several major cities across England.

Britain had a national service, also called the War Service or Military Service, for the first time during World War I from 1916 to 1919 and then twenty years later just after the start of World War II from 1939 to 1960.

    A friend who was a Korrean war vet (now deceased) told me back in the seventies that the British army had become a “peacetime army” in his words, and bull homosexuals had attained ranks in which to bully young recruits. A blind eye was turned to it as brutalisation of recruits and young soldiers was always a British thing.

    He thought that the army during peacetime was an attractive place for homosexuals who wouldnt normally want to be in it during war.
